Garney BookFrom his earliest days drawing comics like G. I. Joe, Moon Knight and Ghost Rider at the beginning of nineties, to his acclaimed run on Captain America and the controversial relaunch of The Hulk later that same decade, to his most recent efforts drawing the adventures of The Amazing Spider-Man, Wolverine and Skaar, Son of Hulk, Ron Garney has proven himself to be a visual storyteller of both consummate skill and dedication.

Now, in a pair of extended conversations with veteran journalist Bill Baker, Garney charts his extraordinary life's journey as an artist. It's all here - from making his own comics as child, his rediscovery of the medium and first attempts to break into the industry, through his fledgling professional efforts and his years of serving as a workhorse for Marvel and DC Comics, to his most recent work in both comics and film. Along the way, he discusses his training and various influences, provides detailed explanations of his approach to the page and reveals why he changes his style from project to project. Garney holds little back, even addressing the price that the job has exacted from him over the years, how it's affected his personal and professional lives, and the important lessons he's learned from it all.

Filled with telling observations delivered with a Sahara-dry wit, displaying an almost embarrassing level of candor alloyed with an understated sophistication, Ron Garney: Going with The Flow presents a self-portrait of the artist as compelling and engaging as the comics he creates.
